Cardinal and Archbishop of Canterbury Robert Kilwardby OP (c. 1215-1279) was a very important and influential thinker in his time, but he has not received the scholarly attention that he deserves. In this book we present the first study of all of his philosophical thinking from logic and grammar to metaphysics and ethics.

"The essays in the volume are of a high quality. Further, the studies are broad and comprehensive, such that the reader is introduced to the central philosophical aspects of Kilwardby's thought. Several of the studies, in particular, increase substantially our understanding of his philosophy by studying heretofore unedited manuscripts." John T. Slotemaker, Fairfield University. In: Religious Studies Review, Vol. 39, No. 4 (December 2013), pp. 278-279.
